JPEG Pleno Holography

Conventional imaging solutions adhere to a ray-based model to describe light propagation. In recent years, the popularity of holographic imaging solutions that follow an interference-based imaging model has increased significantly.

Holographic microscopy and tomography provide a very high depth resolution and hence are extremely relevant in biomedical and industrial imaging and measurement. Moreover, n the creative media domain, AR/VR glasses and holographic table-top 6DoF displays are envisaged that utilized holographic technologies.

The JPEG Pleno Holography efforts aims at providing solutions for the compression of this data that address - but not limited to - these above use cases. The JPEG committee invites the actors in this field to contribute and help to address the compliance issue existing in this field.

This document describes a number of use cases for the coding of holograms and derives relevant requirements.
